Ableton has announced Live 9.5, a free upgrade for Live users that introduces a number of new features.
Most notably, the Simpler device has been overhauled, waveform displays and metering have been improved and new analog-modelled filter modes have been introduced.
Designed in collaboration with Cytomic (who also developed the Glue compressor introduced back in Live 9.0), the filters are integrated within the Sampler, Simpler, Operator and Auto Filter devices.
Here are the details:
Live 9.5 introduces new analog-modeled filters based on classic vintage hardware models that will self-resonate, feedback, and distort beautifully. These filters were built in collaboration with Cytomic and are included in Simpler, Sampler, Operator, and Auto Filter.
Simpler, Live’s powerful but easy-to-use sampling instrument, has been completely overhauled with a new interface, warping, slicing, and new analog-modeled filters built in conjunction with Cytomic. Here are their video demos:
Other updates include:
- Improved waveforms and coloring
- Peak and RMS meters
- More sounds, samples, and drums
- New Max Essentials
- Play in time with Link
- Create a song with Push 2
